Pop celebrity Madonna met President Shimon Peres Saturday during a visit to Israel to attend a conference on Jewish mysticism. Madonna was seen entering the home of the Nobel Peace Prize laureate in Jerusalem after the end of the Jewish New Year at sunset Saturday. Peres gave Madonna a copy of the Old Testament, the Jewish Bible, in the meeting which she had requested. The meeting was closed to the press. On Friday, Madonna was filmed singing Jewish songs and dancing at a conference on Jewish mysticism, or Kabbalah, with a crowd of hundreds at a Tel Aviv hotel. It is unclear how long the music star would stay in Israel. Madonna arrived Wednesday night on a private visit to the Holy Land. Her interest in Kabbalah in recent years, despite her background as a Roman Catholic, has been criticized by Orthodox Jews who say it is an abomination.
